Listening to: Rise Against - Injection
I will never understand males and their communication, esp in text.
I can understand most miscommunications verbally, but text? When it's written down and logged away. You're really gonna deny this? If you ment it this way, why in the world did you write it this other way? Complete opposites. Seriously. I got proof now. You can deny verbally lying sometimes, but lying in text? Really? It's as plain as day here on my phone kid.
So, story. I've been trying to by this DS from this guy, its a great deal and I want it. So I texted him last Monday and asked when he was available to sell it to me. He said not until the weekend. So I said okies, I'll bug you on Saturday. Sat. rolls around and I text him again reminding him of who I am. I said "You said you were available to sell it to me on the weekend" and he's like Uh...I'm going to work right now I can't do it today. I said ....so when CAN you do it? He said morrow (Sun). I jump on that one and said what time. He said he was free anytime after 11. I said great I'll be there between 2 and 3 cuz I don't know how long it will take me to get there (ya know, I don't wanna give him a time and not make it cuz I mis-estimated the time travel there) and he said okay. I said see ya morrow then.
Sunday comes around and I head up there (20 min ago) and I get up there and tell him I can't find his house, nearing 3pm. He texts back and says he's not at home and that I should've called. Now comes all the questions. Uh....hello? We made an appointment? I said see ya morrow? I told you a time estimate and you said you were okay with that? Helllooo? Totally rude.
He said because "we didn't comfirm it 100%" so i didnt think you'd come". What part of 'I'll be there morrow between two and three' and "i'll see ya morrow' says that I'm NOT coming? On what planet does that make sense? Anyone? I was like....well, pissed at that point in time. I barely had enough gas to get out there and back home and hopefully some to get to work and I did it for nothing. I was like "Do you even want to sell this thing?! at all? ever?!" Gar. He's like "Oh yeah it's all yours" Bullshit!
Then, low and behold, he decides to tell me that he's off on a hunting trip at that particular time he was supposed to meet with me. More questions. You said you were available ANYTIME after 11am today, where the hell does a hunting trip fit in there?!!?! And why didn't you tell me you weren't going to be there at the appointed time b/c of a trip? Courtesy?! Ever head of that? Does THAT make sense to anyone either? Someone?
By then I was raging with anger. Screw you Frank! I mean you try your best to get someone who WANTS to sell something to sell it to you at a decent price, but after they blow you off a couple times you should just go somewhere else and maybe get treated better. I usually give them three strikes. I shouldn't have to b/c well they are the ones that want to sell right? I'd if think you wanted to sell you'd make yourself available to actually collect money. Am I off the mark?
I told him he was being rude. He replied "Yes your right... its rude.. since I did get a confirmation call...i didn't think you were coming" I can't...even begin the questions on that sentence. I'm assuming he ment to say "since I didN"T get a confirmation call.... which leads me to this question, How MUCH confirmation does a guy need?! Do I call him every ten minutes on my way up there? Seriously?! Gar. At least he acknowledged it was rude. I wonder how old this guy is. He speaks very uh...intelligently... ahem. No really, he does seem to be able to hold an argument maturely. Well, until he said this "I guess I can bring it to you?" I'll call that bluff right now. BULLSHIT. He wont take the time to let me COME to him, how hell does he expect me to think he'll take the time to bring it to me? I don't think so. I told him we could just forget it. Find someone else. Screw you. I don't deserve this shit. I'm not the one that wants to sell I shouldn't have to chase you down for it. I'll keep my money.
He was calling me by name and even called me "hun" once in the convo. Weird. Never met the guy but I'm so willing to tell him what a jerk he is. mwhaha. Feels good. I've always been too nice for that. I'm done being nice!! The last thing he said was "I'm sorry hun, but it boils down to like three ppl saying they'd come this week and they never did" ......... More. questions. He had time EARILER this week?! and he told me he wasn't available til the weekend? I could've gotten the ds sooner? Hello? And THEN, and then, he basically has just said that he assumed I was a LIAR like everyone else this week. He's comparing me to others. The nerve. He assummeess I'm a liar when I tell him when I'll show up at his place. He's just digging a hole. I was pissed. Do NOT call me a liar. I do NOT lie. When I say I'll be there, I'll be there. You better believe it. And if I decide to go on a random hunting trip at that exact time I'd let you know BEFORE you showed up.
ARGH. And thus, males are stupid.
I can't decide what to do. Well, I dont really know what I CAN do at this point. I really want the DS, but I'm seriously not going to waste my gas chasing him down. Maybe he feels bad and maybe I can get him to commit to a time and get a lower price on the thing. I'm taking $40 for the gas I wasted on our pointless appointment. Do I try again? If I get a DS, I want his. Do I just walk away from Mr. Jerk? Do I ever get a DS? I think I could really use one right now...
For some reason I lost sleep over this stupid guy. All I know is his name, he's a hunter, and he's rude.
OH and Happy Birfday Dustin! I can't remember how old you ppl are anymore. Between 25 (Dal) and 30 (Min). I'm guessing 28. To the long haired hippie who will someday find his way and lose his hair.
